            Eleven Bats: A Story of Combat, Cricket and the SAS

            Anthony 'Harry' Moffitt spent more than 20 years in the SAS. His decades of service and his multiple tours in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan made him one of the regiment's most experienced and respected figures. Alongside the SAS, Harry's other lifetime love is cricket. An impr...ovised game of backyard cricket was often the circuit-breaker Harry and his team needed after the tension of operations. Recognizing the effect of the game on his fellow soldiers, he began a tradition of organising games and matches wherever he was sent, whether it was in the mountains of East Timor with a fugitive rebel leader, or on the dusty streets of Baghdad, or in exposed Forward Operating Bases in the hills of Afghanistan. Soldiers, locals and even visiting politicians played in these spontaneous yet often bridge-building games. As part of the tradition Harry also started to take a cricket bat with him on operational tours, eleven of them in total across his career. They'd travel with him, often go outside the wire with him, and end up signed by those he met or fought alongside. These eleven bats have formed the basis for Harry's extraordinary memoir. It's a book about combat, and what it takes to serve in one of the world's most elite formations. It's a book about the toll that war takes on soldiers and their loved ones. And it's a book about the healing power of cricket, and how a game can cross boundaries and break down borders even in the most desperate of circumstances.

            Clearing Boundaries: The Rise of Australian Women's Cricket

            Clearing Boundaries: The Rise of Australian Women's Cricket (Hardback)

            By Bollen with Matt Bonser, Fiona

            Clearing Boundaries is the first ever coffee-table style book dedicated to women's cricket, and the first literary update on the history of the women's game in Australia for nearly 30 years. The project traces the strong lineage of females in cricket from the 19th century to the ...watershed 2020 T20 World Cup, told largely through the lens of the Australian Women's Cricket Team. Celebrating generations of trailblazers across five distinguishable 'eras' - from foundation to professionalism - Clearing Boundaries curates a collection of short stories covering memorable tours, matches, innings, spells and moments. The highly pictorial book presents over 200 images; many were previously inaccessible to the public, but have been brought back to life by the Bradman Museum's Holman Collection in conjunction with other private collections donated to the Museum. It also features the statistical records of every woman to represent the nation on the cricket field, and a foreword written by arguably Australia's greatest female cricketer, Belinda Clark AO.
